Trayvon’s texts irrelevant


Re the May 24 article Weed, fights and guns: Trayvon Martin’s text messages released: What relevance do Trayvon’s text messages to his friends have to the fact that he was shot and killed while walking unarmed?

Every time George Zimmerman is described by his attorney as being part of his Neighborhood Watch volunteer association, it’s a joke. He self-appointed himself since residents of the development did not have a neighborhood watch program. In addition, when Zimmerman called the police about his "suspect," he was told to stand down. In what language does that mean shoot and kill? I think Mark O’Mara needs to check his children’s or grandchildren’s text messages and find out what they are talking about. Bottom line? Trayvon Martin was killed in cold blood and Zimmerman is guilty of first-degree murder.

    Downtown Miami’s resurgence was well under way before The Big 3 arrived, gained momentum alongside four consecutive championship runs and won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
